Lunch at The Kitchen

Lunch is usually served from 11am daily. Sadly at the moment we are unable to offer our lunch menu, due to staff shortages. But you can still join us for our all day breakfast menu, as well as coffee, cakes, soups and sandwiches. Please ensure you’ve booked a table online before you visit, we do accept walk-ins but wouldn't like you to be disappointed if we're fully booked!

We love good food here at The Kitchen. Food that’s local, from the heart and downright delicious. And we love serving it in the gorgeous, light-filled space that is our restaurant with stunning views across the Park, River Esk and out to the historic Orangerie. We have child-friendly menus plus vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and dairy free options.

Please ensure you book online before your visit. Thank you.
